This small village, at 45 km from Chiclayo, is more interesting for its history than for what there is to see. Indeed, only ruins can testify the glorious past of this small and now peaceful place. It was created by the Spanish during the American conquest; Zaña rapidly became a very important trade and maritime hub: that is why there are a lot of churches’ rests in a restricted territory. But this richness also attracted pirates that came to steal and also destroyed the city in 1686. Finally, this is the high waters of the river that ended the town. The streets are now like they were before, with a yesteryear and nostalgia fragrance. This is a small and interesting detour.
